    Don't know yet. The goal was to have a minimum of 3 gallons.

    ME TOO! It will get padded and upholstered. The 'seat" will be held on by velcro".

    Now I've been wondering about those drag pipes and then I watched the drags ans realized I already named them for what I thought they were! Then today after taking another look at the latest pictures and realized that those monster stacks are offset, which as many of us have realized in the past that the sides are in fact offset!

    So I have to ask, is that your intention, to run this hot rod on the track? either straight or on a road course? and as for the offset, was it an oversight, or just an unneccessory adjustment?

    Have fun either way!!

    Put gel foam with a layer of dense 1/2 in on top of that. you will be surprised how well that 1" will work for you..

    My original intent was to drag race it. The cylinder offset that creates the exhaust pipe offset is almost impossible to mitigate.
    The configuration of the swing arm, and the final drive, and their relationship to the frame are the major factors. A more practical exhaust would be 3 into 1 with a short turned out fat tip.

    Default Test Ride

    Did some final checks, and lit the fuse! The motor fired right up, after not being run in many years. Went for an uneventful (the way you want them) test ride.
